My children love flavored instant oatmeal, however it can get pricey. So I buy
the large container of quick cooking oats and put some in the food processor and
pulse it a few times to make the grains smaller. Then I take 3/4 cup of the oats and
put in sandwich bags with brown sugar to taste. When my boys want oatmeal it is
all ready for them. They just add hot water! Because the grains are smaller they
cook just like instant oatmeal. You could also add dried fruit to the food processor
to get flavors like peaches and cream. Then just add hot milk instead of the water.
